An Intel briefing has spilled a few more beans on it's upcoming dual core mobile CPU, or Yonah as it's known to it's friends, which the company is planning on releasing in the next 12 months:

Intel shed a little more light on its forthcoming dual-core mobile chip today in a briefing with reporters, confirming that the Yonah processor's two cores will share a single bank of cache memory

Yonah is the code name for the dual-core version of Intel's Pentium M processor for notebooks and miniature desktops, scheduled for release in the first quarter of next year. Unlike Intel's first dual-core designs for desktop PCs, Yonah is a much more integrated design that shares storage and power management resources within the chip, said Mooly Eden, vice president and general manager of Intel's mobile platforms group.
